Typically, for exterior applications, a mobile propane or gas powered pressure washer is best suited for getting the work done.
For internal applications however, electric pressure washers are recommended as there is no exhaust and they are much more quiet than gas or propane powered washers.
If you are thinking on purchasing a pressure washer of your own a gas powered pressure washer is generally recommended, especially if there are large jobs to tackle and required regular cleaning. There are many comments among consumers that state that over the years the electric power failed prematurely in comparison to gas powered pressure washers.
